UCF quarterback McKenzie Milton continues to recover from the brutal leg injury he suffered in the regular season finale against USF. He underwent another surgery on Friday.

Tonight, Milton's mother Teresa provided an update on his progress. He was released earlier today.

"Meet the dream team. Less five other attending ‘s. KZ will be realeaaed today 100% success! Now for the recovery work. We had Gods healing And amazing surgeons . Please keep prayers coming!" she tweeted.

Given how serious Milton's injury was, there's a good chance he won't be able to play next season. UCF seems prepared for that possibility.

The Knights landed Notre Dame grad transfer quarterback Brandon Wimbush. Wimbush will compete with Darriel Mack Jr. for the starting job in 2019.

Mack played in nine games, making two starts in place of Milton as a redshirt freshman in 2018.

In the meantime, Milton will continue to recover. The most important thing is he gets his health back, regardless of when he can return to the gridiron.
